for the president of the united states. at the white house today, senior obama administration officials met with liberal leaders and union officials. "the washington post" reports that one told him after the meeting, quote, would the white house go off the cliff if it's between that and compromising their core principles? i was left with the impression that they would. illinois democratic senator dick durbin spoke today at the liberal center for american progress where he said this about the possibility of going off the cliff which fears of this show know is is really more of a curb than a cliff. >> some have called let's go over the cliff and watch what happens. we know if we're not careful, it will in fact stop economic growth and hurt everyone through every income category, particularly those most vulnerable. >> what he did not say is he must not go off the cliff. because the cliff is president obama's and the congressional democrats leverage over republicans. if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defe

doing kind of the exact same thing "the washington post" reporting in a sign that obama strategy poses a threat, house republicans announced their own pr effort tuesday. leadership aides say republican members of congress will visit small businesses nationwide in coming weeks to assert that obama's position would threaten job creation. the rnc has its own twitter hash tag which is stop the tax hikes. sas sasha, you wrote about campaign infrastructure and how sophisticated obama's machine was. this is certainly more -- more of a rudimentary version of that but it seems like the campaign is adapting both sort of rhetorically and anecdotally campaign tactics but also practically they're still keeping folks on the payroll. i think they hired just 100 folks from the campaign to come back and try to gin up enthusiasm for the president's policies or position out in actual america. >> yeah. a president trying to get local news coverage by traveling out of washington isn't terribly novel as a tactic. i think the big challenge or there's a special opportunity for obama is to mobilize a sort of g
to washington. and now today to them it seems so close they can taste it. because although john kerry is still a senator from massachusetts, after his very high-profile role in the obama campaign and speaking gig at the democratic national convention, after that john kerry's name was put forward as one possibility, a leading possibility to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. that, of course, would result in him leaving his senate seat after all, which would mean there would be a temporary ae re placement appointed and then there would have to be another special election to fill the rest of his term where scott brown would be the republican nominee again. which would be the best chance of putting a republican in the senate any time soon. which is why republicans got so excited when john kerry's name was floated. his name was floated along with one other name for that job. republican senators were very, very quick to point out that they really prefer john kerry to be the nominee for secretary of state. a ringing endorsement for john kerry from republicans in washington. because if joh
obama won reelection. the president knows i'm the most reasonable and responsible guy in washington. you know in some ways john boehner has proven to be reasonable over the years. in june 2002 during george w. bush's first term in office, congressional republicans were faced with the issue of raising the nation's debt ceiling. that's the limit for how much the country can borrow to pay for things. no politician ever likes to raise the debt ceiling. nobody likes to think the country has to borrow money, but we do. so in june of 2002 when that vote came up, he voted yes. let's raise the debt ceiling. it's the responsible thing to do. november 2004, john boehner voted to do it again under president bush to raise the debt ceiling. april 2005 at the start of bush's second term, john boehner votes in favor of raising the debt ceiling. so matter how opposed you might be to borrowing money, however, distasteful it is to you, everybody realizes as long as we are borrowing money, not raising the debt ceiling would be a very irresponsible thing to do. it would be a disaster for the country. everybo
that these guys have in washington. some have been part of obama's inner circle. jeffrey has sat on the head of the jobs council. the ceo of boeing is the chairman of the export council. so they do have a lot of influence. they contribute a lot to political campaigns and they have lobbyists crawling all over washington to speak for them. >> eliot: bill, you've seen it. why do they hold such sway? the scoundrels of the economic cataclysm. why do they still walk back in there and people lay down the red carpet? >> eliot it's money. it is not that much either. if you look at the top -- eight of the top ten supporters of obama in 2008 were wall street firms, this time around, eight of the top ten biggest supporters for romney were wall street firms. it is not that much money. it is like a million and a half bucks coming out of goldman sachs. number one biggest supporter for romney. they can get a lot of influence. this isn't new. this has been going on for 100 years. sidney weinberg was going back and forth betw

story on the front page of "the washington post" today, right here on the top right-hand side, obama launches p.r. effort on cliff the fiscal cliff, of course. putting pressure on congress, president will talk to small business owners. so here's what's going on. right. with this fiscal cliff looming the president has laid out -- very, very clear what he's talking about, what he wants to see. it is a $4 billion package of cuts to the deficit a combination of spending cuts and new revenue and about $2 trillion of that coming from getting rid of the bush tax cuts. at the same time while getting rid of the tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of americans letting the tax cuts for 98% of americans continue because the middle class do need the help and the wealthiest people do not. so to get there of course, and by the way let's back up, right. the president put forth his plan on november 6th and mitt romney put forth his plan and the american people said no, we don't like that romney way of going which is to continue t
, of americans, whereas when they asked if obama is doing enough to cooperate with the gop, 45% yes, 49% no. clearly the republicans are being predominantly blamed for the breakdown in bipartisanship in washington. the fiscal cliff is a classic opportunity, many would argue, to show the americans you've listened, you've changed, you're ready to do deals that are to the benefit of the american national interest. >> well, i mean, piers, look, the president's the leader of this country and he's got to lead and he's got to take control, and he's got to show the american people that he can put people together and a team together, meaning republicans and democrats, and come up with solutions but so far, piers, we don't even know what the president's plans are. he's done a good job of apparently making americans feel that that's the case, but what he hasn't done a good job is really leading with evidence and with substance on the table as far as what he would do. here's the problem, piers. if we really want to have an honest discussion about where we're at in this country and this fiscal problem f
. in washington there's still time for posturing and positions. no direct talks are scheduled or contemplated between president obama and tough congressional republicans. instead there will be white house meetings and appeals on twitter to preserve middle income tax cuts, worth on average about $2,000. that white house hash tag is my2k if you're interested. they say it will keep the recovery going. on his part president obama travels to a tinker toy factory outside of philadelphia on friday. to link tax cuts to consumer spending. tinker toys. hmm. some americans might see that as more than a white house backdrop. one other quick note, tom cole, a leading republican in the house in oklahoma told politico yesterday that the republicans should give in to the white house demands and quickly pass those middle class tax cuts. but house republican leadership sources tell me that cole was speaking only for himself, completely freelancing, but he is speaking for more republicans in the house, this could be a breakthrough. guys? >> with us is democratic senator amy klobuchar. great to see you. >> great
. thanks for being with me. live from new york, the news is popping in washington though today. right now, the white house announcing president obama will host mitt romney for lunch tomorrow. so the president breaking bread tomorrow with his vanquished opponent. we also have this. the president meeting, right now, with his cabinet, perhaps the final cabinet meeting for several administration stalwarts. among them, secretary of state hillary clinton, and treasury secretary tim geithner. hold the phone, though, because we he potential movement in the talks to avert the troublesome tax increase set to take effect january 1st. a top house republican is apparently, today, breaking ranks. essentially siding with the white house here, saying, protect the middle class from higher taxes come january 1st. but not the wealthy. not that top 2%. go ahead, raise them, he says. here he is, congressman tom cole after a meeting with house republicans. >> in my view, we all agree that we're not going to raise taxes on people that make less than $250,000. we should just take them out of this discussion righ
of people across this country who have a real stake in the outcome of what happens in washington. >> you tried to tap into that. when you were at the white house, you trade to tap into this core group of people that is different, the obama coalition, it is sort of i think we're going to look back on it and say this isn't a democratic party coalition, it's an obama coalition. it was a reagan coalition that he could mobilize. you seem to struggle to do it on policy. why was that? >> let's look at who that coalition is. it's latinos all across the country. it's young people. it's which will. it's african-american, it's middle class families. take a look at what the president wants to get done the next fourees, keep tax rates low, immigration reform, make progress on clean energy and these are things that coalition cares about. so i think that you'll see a much more mobilized group of people across this country. look at what we were able to do over the last year, a year ago, in renewing the payroll tax cut. we took that case to the american people. do you want to play politics. >> everyone i
